Promoting Green Investments in the Eastern Caribbean

How does one “green” an economy? For governments seeking a cleaner, more efficient, and ultimately more sustainable pathway to economic prosperity, this question entails both promise and great challenges. The Green Growth Investment Forum (GGIF) aims at gathering potential investors and policy makers in the Caribbean and create awareness in Europe of the specific development realities and challenges facing the small islands of the OECS. The participants will comprise investors in the area of “green economy” in the Caribbean and private sector representatives who use green technologies or are interested in developing these technologies within their companies. Major deliverables of the Forum are the proposal for a Green Award for enterprises who produce based on sustainable and environment-friendly criteria; the need for the exploration surrounding the development of a technical and regulatory (legislative) framework to allow for more effective implementation of a green economy in the Eastern Caribbean; and the way forward for joint energy policy formulation in the OECS, with regulated exchange of information and technology with neighboring territories. This meeting will be organized by OECS in collaboration with CTA and will take place in Saint Lucia in July 2012.
More information will be available at brusselsbriefings in the coming weeks.
